This Veterans Day, the GVSU Student Veterans of America Chapter (Laker Vets) in partnership with the Peter Secchia Military and Veterans Resource Center, invite you to participate in the second annual Laker Vet Run, Walk Fly 5K! 

More of a "fun run" than a fast run. This year's proceeds will go directly to our Student Veterans of America Chapter, Laker Vets to support the members' attendance at the national conference in Nashville, TN where they will join chapters from over 1,500 campuses for time to share ideas, best practices, network with military-connected students, supporters, allies, as well as corporate, government, and non-profit partners.

  1. SHOW YOUR LAKER/PATRIOTIC PRIDE: Wear your GVSU / red, white & blue gear as you walk/run to raise awareness.
  2. GET YOUR WORKOUT IN! Carry a weight/rucksack with you during your 5k to symbolize the weight veterans have carried for this country.
  3. INVOLVE FAMILY & FRIENDS: Bring your “family” members with you on your walk/run to show solidarity with military-connected students.
